I saw the new Versys 1000 at the NEC show, well as much as can be seen at that show.......however a visit to my local dealer this weekend gave me the opportunity to view the 'basic' model in great detail, and it is spectacular

I have ordered a top of the range SE Grand Tourer which will bd available in February /March 2019.... the specification is far too much to list....AMAZING  !  I cant wait

If I was thinking of changing I would be having a very serious look at the new Versys. It has all the bells and whistles you need which you would have to pay extra for on certain European makes.

The Versys1000 shouldn't be overlooked,  it meets all the touring requirements,  I have had 4 GTRs and loved every one of them, but the big Versys is outstanding. .....I have owned two..........and have just ordered my third which features aĺ the latest technology,  an amazing bike....

Oh and before anyone starts whinging about chain drive being high maintenance, it isn't,  it is easy to manage and neither messy or inconvenient. Modern chains are long lasting, quiet and very reliable   :yes:     

Yep got to agree i will be ordering a new Versys in the New year for March delivery sad to see the GTR go but i am ready for a change now. i will be PX the GTR nearer the time ( or sooner should a reasonable offer come my way ).

Not so ironic on  GTR1400 site when Kawasaki has discontinued the GTR line.
Even I am starting to look at BMWs as Kawas ideas of SportTouring now seems to be sportsbikes with panniers  :mfr_lol: :rip: :hang:

I'll be keeping the GTR for some time yet as it won't be used that much, a few odd weekends when the wife comes out on the back and European touring with the wife. I have my GSXS1000 for me when I go out with my mates. I can't see a real option available at the minute to replace the GTR. Yes there is the FJR but I tried one and couldn't get on with it, the K1600GT is just too big, in the same bracket as the Honda armchair thingy. I do like the H2SX but again it's more suited to one person. I may own the GTR for a lot of years to come. :cool:

Pete, Im just saying.....but dont you think its ironic that on a Kawasaki site the only current topic activity is about BMWs and in a good light.  :popcorn:
Strength to the brotherhood that is bmw.  :whistling:
